Overview

Greater Niagara House Rental Photos and Description

A 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home with on-site Parking and Fenced in Backyard

Located in a lovely area of Niagara Falls, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is located only 3.3 miles from Niagara Falls State Park.

The master bedroom with attached bath is located on the first floor and has a queen bed. The other two bedrooms are located on the second floor and both have double beds. One of the rooms has a small sitting room attached that has a daybed for an extra guest. The other full bathroom is on the second floor.

On the first floor in addition to the master bedroom, is the kitchen, living room and dining room, and back hallway that leads to a screened in porch and the back yard.

The house is in the Deveaux area of Niagara Falls, a beautiful residential neighborhood, situated near Niagara University. The house is a 10-minute walk to the Whirlpool and Devil’s Hole State Parks and a 10 min. drive or 20 min. bike ride along the Gorge to the Niagara Falls State Park. Lewiston is also a short drive up the parkway and has many cute shops and nice restaurants.

The house is most easily accessed by car but the NFTA buses do run along Lewiston Road which is on the corner and goes to either Lewiston or to Niagara Falls.

The house has wi-fi throughout. There is a SmartTV and DVD player in the master bedroom, but there is no cable. There is a driveway for you to use to park your vehicle. Pets will be considered.

About Carroll Reetz

We are avid travelers and running this guesthouse allows us some freedom in the off season to do just that. Carroll spent most of her career in Human Resources but gave it all up (darn) several years ago to open a hostel in Niagara Falls- leaving the wonderful California weather behind but gaining a wonderful husband. Andre is from Germany and we found each other here! We have since expanded from the hostel and added a couple vacation rentals to our endeavors. We think they are a great alternative to a sterile hostel - more like home away from home. We love hosting visitors from all over the world and introducing them to not only the beauty of Niagara Falls but the uniqueness and history that surrounds us.

Carroll Reetz purchased this house in 2012

Why Carroll Reetz chose Greater Niagara

The Whirlpool Cottage is in the nicest area of Niagara Falls where visitors can feel relaxed and secure in their home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was really nice to stay here. The canape is lovely and the location is perfect for the visit to the Falls. We would love to spend here more time. Thank you.

Great location, Great neighborhood, spacious home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time here in Niagara at this home. The home is very spacious with the two levels and three bedrooms. It was great having the sun room in the back and so nice to have a driveway to park the car in. We were so comfortable here in this home that was so much like the home we grew up in that we didn't want to leave.

We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and on that note it would have been nice to have a better set of pots and pans so we purchased our own. My family loves to cook even on vacation.

Thanks for a great home and great location. Loved the hardwood floors

Nice house

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice house to stay at. I feel like it wasn't quite as close to everything as I thought it would be. Everything was very clean and neat. This was a great place to stay and j would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to vacation at niagara falls.

Comfortable house, enough sleeping room for our extended family while on this vacation, with a fenced in yard; perfect for the kids to play. Short drive to all Niagara attractions. Easy online booking, payments and messaging with quick responses.

Just like home...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at "Whirlpool Cottage " was extremely enjoyable. Located on a quiet tree-lined neighborhood with easy access to both the Falls and Lewiston NY a quaint town with terrific shops and restaurants. Coming from a top tourism state like Florida, which features numerous vacation home rentals, I was so pleased to finally find these type of homes available. BRAVO! Was very impressed with the owners customer service throughout our visit. Fabulous job!

Charming spacious house in quiet, nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience for our family's first trip to Niagara Falls. The property was clean and well maintained. The programmed lock made it easy to get into the house. The home has many charming features and was tastefully decorated. The rooms were bigger than what appeared on the website and we had plenty of room for our family of 7 (2adults, 5 kids). Caroll was easy to get in touch with if needed, and the information about the house and the area were clearly provided. We would highly recommend this house for a trip to Niagara Falls area!

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect. There was 4 adults and 3 kids that stayed in the house. It was just the right size, had everything you would need and was the perfect location. I would definitely recommend to family and friends that would be traveling to the area. Big shout out to The NY Power Authority. Great hospitality and just minutes from the house. Communication with the owner's was very easy.
